Lamps are a great piece of interior decoration. They don’t just give light,they give much more. Atmosphere, feel, joy, energy, and much, much more.
Everybody uses lamps but, not everybody knows how to properly use them. Or more precisely, place them. It’s not that difficult to use lamps, you just turn them on but, putting them in the right place is a more difficult task. How do you do that? Find out in this text.
1. Special corner light
A reading corner of your dreams is waiting. Find the perfect lamp for it and you will be enjoying your favorite books in no time. It can be a bit tricky but, it is definitely worth it. You can use a few of these lamps and get good lighting. If you are specifically choosing a lamp for a place you will read in,choose one that can be pointed in the direction you want it to. In that way, if you are comfortable in a certain position but, the light doesn’t fall there, you can just adjust the lamp instead of adjusting your position.
2. Balanced light
Great lighting often comes down to balance. It doesn’t really matter if you have a great lamp or a great lighting idea which is not balanced properly. In that case, it won’t have the right effect. Symmetry is very important here. Remember,balanced lighting is great lighting. If you want more balance,try mixing natural light and artificial light. The light coming through your light filtering blinds and the light coming from your lamps will make a great combo.
3. Perfect lighting for your dresser
A beautiful wall lamp and a big mirror is something you absolutely need on your dresser. You just can’t do without it. Here, the light should not be very strong. If you have any background in this field, you will probably know that a very powerful light creates sharp shadows, which is something you really don’t want. The best choice would be a lamp that can be adjusted so, it shines weaker or stronger depending on your need.
4. Cables as decoration
Something you hear very often is Designers saying that you should not hide your cables but, rather make them stand out. They can be used as beautiful decoration pieces. Do whatever you like with them if, it doesn’t damage them of course. You can clip on butterflies. You can even paint it in a cool color you like. The options are great, and each one of them will make your home a more beautiful place for you to enjoy,feel great, and amazing.
5. The main lighting in the room
Big wall lamps are great for your space for multiple reasons. And, one of them is functionality. They can be used as reading lamps, they can be used as a central light source. They are great. Retro lamps are awesome too. They fit into every style and look beautiful wherever you put them.
